Woman told her 11 week baby was “collection of cells”

A British woman spoke about the “counseling” she got before her abortion:

“I went to see the BPAS [British Pregnancy Advisory Service]; the people I saw seemed impersonal, very businesslike in their attitude and there was no counseling… Although I was 11 weeks pregnant, I was told it was just a collection of cells – not a baby – which was precisely what I needed to hear in order to justify myself to myself. To get through I needed to dehumanize the baby and maintain absolute denial. The abortion was booked for three weeks’ time.”

Margaret Sanger on the “fit” and “unfit”

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger said:

“The lack of balance between the birth rate of the “unfit” and the “fit,” admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. The example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken, should not be held up for emulation…. On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective. Possibly drastic and Spartan methods may be forced upon American society if it continues complacently to encourage the chance and chaotic breeding that has resulted from our stupid, cruel sentimentalism.”

Sibling of aborted baby reveals her feelings after retreat

At a retreat for the siblings of aborted babies, one woman wrote:

“I thought about my siblings deeply for the first time… ever. It hit me that had any of them been born, I would not have been ‘the eldest’ but the second youngest. The more I thought about it, the more I felt a certain identity crisis.”

Pro-choicer compares funding abortion to funding war

Pro-choice author Claire Andersson says:

“Funding abortion is no different from funding a war in the Mideast. For those who are opposed, the place to express outrages in the voting booth.”

She is a pro-choice author who advocates for abortion funding through Medicaid.

Abortion clinic worker comments on women getting lost

Darla Patterson, an abortion clinic worker, made these observations on the website Tales from the Clinic:

“People who are lost often call us on their crap reception cellular phones and shout frantically through the mouthpiece at us the names of the streets they’re passing. They don’t want to stop and ask for directions in case people figure out where they’re going or because they’re just so tweaked out about it all that they can’t behave rationally. The fact that a good number of women are cloak-and-dagger furtive about their abortions can be somewhat tirtesome (sic) in these sort of situations, even though it’s understandable. I imagine that if I could watch their cars from a spaceship hovering above they would look like drunken bees careening around and around the hive of our clinic. Or the anti-hive, more precisely.”

Textbook for providers: adolescents have more postabortion trauma

In a textbook meant to teach future abortion workers, it says:

“Adolescents can present the counsellor with sharply delineated views and feelings, they tend to be dissatisfied with the choice of abortion, viewing abortion as “wrong” and perhaps because of this often present late. Research shows that they can report greater severity of psychological stress and deserve careful counseling.”

Nurse tells young woman her aborted baby is a girl

One abortion patient said:

“I was almost 5 months when I told my mother so I had to pay $1,000 to have a saline abortion and the doctor stuck this big needle in my stomach and joked and laughed the whole time like he was at a golf game with his country club buddies and he had no emotion or empathy for me it was awful and demeaning, then I was admitted into the hospital until I delivered the baby, the pain that I had with the delivery were terrible and when the baby came the insensitive nurse said It’s a girl! Like it was a normal delivery and it was a happy occasion but all I could do was cry, after that I was taken into another room where the doctor removed the after birth and checked me for missing body parts from the baby and there was so much blood I thought I was gonna die right there. Then they put the baby in a jar and left her in the bathroom on the edge of the shower for me to see.”

Abortion textbook: abortion minded women may still want to protect the baby

In a textbook for future abortion providers, it states that some women may decide on abortion and yet still want to protect their babies from harmful substances. These women would make an abortion appointment, but still avoid drinking or doing drugs that could damage the baby:

“Women who know they want to end a pregnancy can nevertheless be reluctant to take anything that could be harmful to a foetus.”

Joanna Brien, Ida Fairbairn Pregnancy and Abortion Counseling (London: Routledge, 1996) 27

this seems to indicate a certain amount of ambivalence.

Pro-abortion philosopher: “human mental defectives could be used as food”

Pro-abortion philosopher Peter Singer explains how cannibalism is acceptable if the victim is “mentally defective”:

“Mental defectives do not have a right to life, and therefore might be killed for food – if we should develop a taste for human flesh – or for the purpose of scientific experimentation.”

As cited by Martin Maywer in Fundamentalist Journal, June 1988

Abortion patient will only accept abortion as birth control

In a book for abortion clinic workers on counseling abortion minded women, it gives the example of Jasmine, a woman who is not interested in learning about birth control after her abortion:

“It became more and more of a battle with each method of contraception being rejected. There was no way Jasmine could discuss condoms with her boyfriend; the pill was out of the question as it could be discovered. At one point during the consultation the doctor nearly ended up agreeing that maybe abortion was the only form of ‘birth control’ that was practical.”
